2014- Jackson County Overpass Bas Relief Panels

The replicated bas-reliefs are just like the ones gracing the walls of the Markay Cultural Arts Center, and will be painted with the blue background, and the bas reliefs in white, just like their predecessors.

1930 Markay Theatre on Jackson’s Main Street The renovation of the 1930 Markay Theatre on Jackson’s Main Street has been a long and difficult project undertaken by Southern Hills Arts Council.

A whopping $1.2 million has already been invested with another $300,000 needed to get to the first complete live performance on the Markay’s new stage. 

A key element in this plan was saving the six lifesized bas-relief sculptures on the walls of the Auditorium.  These figures came to symbolize Jackson Ohio’s historic past.  When plans were made for a new overpass in the town, the city wanted to incorporate these into the design. 

Trimtec Systems began discussions with the city’s cultural arts council on how this might be accomplished.  Since they are too valuable to move, Trimtec would have each actual 12 foot tall sculpture scanned while in place. 

The resulting scans where used to create 3D models of each.  Then the computer files where used to create a full-size negative model of each.    

These were programmed and a router-cut into EPS molds yielding a smooth finish similar to the originals.   

The EPS foam molds were placed in the form work and the concrete was poured.  When the foam was removed and the area pressured washed, the true beauty of these replicated bias relief panels were revealed.

These beautiful panels will stand as a testament to Jackson Ohio’s historic past and Trimtec Systems is proud to have brought these to life.
